The Belmar community finally welcomes its first affordable housing in CityScape at Belmar, a mixed-income senior apartment community. With 130-units, CityScape is a LEED Platinum building with the largest solar array of any residential building on the western slope. On Thanksgiving day, CityScape welcomed its first residents and since then, all affordable units, making up 70% of total units, have been leased with only a few market-rate 1- or 2-bedroom apartments remaining. The 4-story building boasts underground parking, LakewoodRides pick-up and on-site resident services, leasing and maintenance. The rooftop deck will host one of the two community gardens, the second in the courtyard. The residents also have two community rooms, a wellness room and fitness center.
The Grand Opening party was held on Friday, Dec. 11 for a large group of partners, industry friends and Belmar neighbors. Guests enjoyed catered hors d’oeuvres, local brews and wine while George Valuck, MWHS board chair, played the piano. Tours allowed the guests to peruse open and staged units, as well as the rooftop patio and other common areas.
This affordable apartment community would not be possible without the assistance and funding of MWHS’ partners: CHFA, First Bank, Enterprise Community Partners, HUD, Department of Local Affairs, City of Lakewood and Jefferson County.
